war. >> the obama white house is engaged in a war of words with "washington post" reporter bob woodward over the origin of the spending cuts. >> jon: oh, a war of words as long as one of those words isn't drone, really that's the kind of war you can get into with this administration. why would you word war with a ledge gend dairy word warrior like woodward? [cheers and applause] [laughter] hairball. [ laughter ] woodward, of course is the hand some redford half of woodward and bern styne. it goes back when he said the white house moved the goal post on the current sequester proceedings by suggesting tax increases inlew of cuts. the republicans agreed to spending cuts. a fair accounting of overall debt would allow them -- so the notion that obama was moving the goal post was less accurate that -- sorry. wanted to wake you guys back up. [laughter] apologize. [cheers and applause] that's actually as far as we got even writing frankly. it was -- [snoring] [laughter] it was after that article that woodward received a rather curious e-mail. >> and it was said to me in an e-mail by a
to save the democrats from themselves. to me, i felt like the obama white house would have at least been in on it. dianne feinstein doesn't think so. >> andrea: i think the white house knew from the get-go this did not have the muster to pass the senate. if i could comment on mighter moore. i -- michael moore. it hate to diagnose liberal logic but isn't he saying if your relative was killed bay car, you should want all cars banned, i guess? are we supposed to ban cars? it doesn't make much sense. assault weapons ban was done for political reason and it makes harry reid look like this moderate and gets all the democrats didn't want it cover. they can look like they are voting against it now. on an amendment. separately for it. it's basically a two-fer but in a political way for them. to answer your question, it took me a while, but i think that they had this -- >> dana: i was surprised. >> bob: this is pure and simple harry reid projecting his majority. harry reid will do anything necessary to keep his job. he has six democratic senators out for re-election from very difficult states, who
that is one of excess. >> bill: is that true? is mr. obama living like a sultan in the white house? we'll hear what michele bachmann has to say. >> we are also the ones who are paying for someone to walk the president's dog. >> bill: and give you the facts. >> our marines were trained there in hawthorne and with the sequester it's going to cut this stuff back. >> bill: senator harry reid blaming budget cuts for the death of seven marines in nevada. but the marine corps is furious about that. >> marine corps officials this afternoon are taking a strong exception to what harry reid implied. >> bill: we'll have the inside story. >> you have got to ease up. take it easy. >> bill: dennis miller takes a look at the barack obama satan controversy as stephan seagull meeting putin in moscow. >> i want to take you to the bank, to the blood bank. >> caution. you are about to enter the no spin zone. the factor begins right now. >> bill: hi, i'm bill o'reilly. thanks for watching us tonight. america today and the iraq war. that is the subject of this evening's talking points memo. it was 10 years ago that
, period. >> reporter: mr. obama made a warm gesture. planting a tree from the white house. and the president finally visiting reassured some israelis. >> he's well support k in israel. i think his intentions are good as well. >> reporter: palestinians protested the obama visit in the west bank. security was heavy, but netanyahu joked he'd help mr. obama slip away. >> well, we've picked up a few cafes and bars in tel aviv and we've prepared a fake mustache for you. >> reporter: they toured missiles that the u.s. helped develop. and israelis credit with saving lives last november shooting down hamas missiles. the obama message to israel, america has your back. tomorrow the focus will shift to the israeli palestinian conflict. president obama will visit the west bank, talk to the palestinian leader mahmoud abbas. live from washington, i'm steve handelsman. >> thanks so much, steve. >>> back here u.s. representative eric swolwell held the first live chat during a city council meeting. he held the conference via skype. he gave an update on congress and answered questions. sowel
that the brisket was dry. [laughter] and now, the greatest insult of all. >> obama will make his first trip to israel as president. >> the white house hasn't released details of his trip but israeli media says he's visiting this spring. >> stephen: oh, so now obama thinks he can wipe out his shameful record of never visiting israel by visiting israel. [laughter] it's a chonda! don't fall for it, my chosen brethren, my he-bros. [laughter] he doesn't get you. [cheers and applause] this man doesn't get it. israel is a divided country that feels beseiged by terrorists, and whose politics are increasingly dictated by a small, hard-right minority. obama can't relate to that! [laughter] and if you need more proof that the president is no friend of israel, just do the math: back in 2007, president bush supported israel with $2.3 billion in foreign military aid. this year, president obama wants to bring that down to just $3.1 billion. [laughter] i know, it looks like it's going up, but remember, in hebrew you read charts from right to left. [cheers and applause] all right? [cheers and applause] and
. that effort take a different tone on a specific issue today. chief white house correspondent ed henry is traveling with the president and reports from jerusalem. >> president obama spent a second day in jerusalem showing he is mending fences with israeli leaders to get upclose look at the dead sea scrolls and later trying to go around the leaders to appeal to the young people of israel to talk up peace. >> look to a future in which jews and muslims and christians can all live in peace and greater prosperity in this holy land. >> while also holding out the threat of war. again, vowing that the u.s. will have israel's back. by threatening possible military hip hop action military action against iran. >> all options are on the table. we will do what we must to prevent nuclear armed iraq. >> one day after talks with obama, perez agreed to exclusive interview with fox news and declared he beliefs his american counterpart is prepared to bomb iran if necessary. >> america is really looking for peace. but if somebody threatens peace, america is playing chicken. >> reporter: they hosted mr. ob
: if you look at this, could president obama reinstate white house tours if he wanted to? 63% say, yes he could. >> of course he could. martha, there's no question he could. okay, here's $380 million i got you right there. martha: that's my point. >> strike that. the other point in this, in my office budget, martha, last year i gave back 21% of my budget. are you delling me the white house can't find funds within its budget to allow schoolchildren to see the white house? it is really ridiculous when you think about it, that they can't find funds within their existing budget. i know they could if they tried. martha: we also talked about the overlapping agencies. i played yesterday a sound bite of the president in his own state of the union address talking about how three different agencies dealt with salmon. and we looked it up to try to figure out if that was still happening and it is still happening. in many of the case he cited those agencies have grown in their responsibilities, not been cut. what can be done about all of the overlap and redundancy? >> here's what can be done. since i'
show." i'm michael eric dyson in for ed schultz. president obama makes his first trip to israel and gets caught at an open mike. the love gov makes a comeback in south carolina, and march madness hits the white house. >>> but tonight, i start with washington dropping the ball on protecting our children. >>> this is "the ed show," and as ed would say, let's get to work. >>> it was supposed to change everything. the massacre at sandy hook elementary school was brutal and horrific, it shook us to our core but out of the tragedy, there was a hope something could get done. we as americans believed this was the event that would prompt our lawmakers to finally act, yet this is the cover of today's "new york daily news," shame on us. the faces of the 20 murdered children of the elementary school students in newtown, connecticut, surrounding those words. this is how a paper in the nation's largest city is reacting to news of the assault weapons ban being dropped. it was announced tuesday that the ban, introduced by dianne feinstein of california, was getting dropped from a larger gun saf
to other staffing. there was no influx of excessive staffing when president obama came to the white house. and the dog walker she mentions is in reality the white house groundskeeper. cnn's dana bash attempted to follow up with bachmann about what he had said. the as a result, both women out of breath and a dramatic shift in topic. >> what i want to ask you about is the fact that you talked about the excesses that he's engaged in, the fact that he has a dog walker which is not true. >> the big point of my speech was about benghazi. this was an absolute disaster. >> you also made specific accusations about the president spending money that other presidents also made. >> the real issue is there are four americans that are dead. the secretary of state was not in conversation with a secretary of defense or with the chair of the joint chiefs of staff. >> i think that's an important point. if you want to focus on that -- >> that's it. that's what's important. do you want to talk about dog handlers and there's four americans killed? >> congresswoman, you're the one who put it up. >> of course, t
obama on what the white house is pushing in reaction to the tragedy in newtown. if joe biden said, yeah, the assault weapons ban, let's being honest, it's not going anywhere, i think it would have somewhat a chilling effect on the momentum and the push broadly to get something done. he is the public cheerleader, the cheerleader has to frankly cheer. he has to say, i think this is still possible. i think joe biden, look joe biden spent a long time in the senate. he knows in his heart of hearts, the assault weapons ban is almost certainly doomed. he doesn't want to jeopardize the other pieces, high-capacity magazines. maybe broaden background check. universal background checks. he wants to keep those in play. i think that's why you're seeing him sort of put a brave face on. >> and i want you to play a little bit of the sound of that joint appearance by mike bloomberg and joe biden today on guns. >> even though restrictions on military-style weapons will not be part of the bill that goes to the floor of the u.s. senate, it will get a vote by the full senate as an amendment to the bill. and
? >>> michelle obama was running from reporters after claiming president obama lives it up in the white house. a lifestyle of excess, talking about chefs on air force one, movie workers and a dog walker. the fact checker called bachmann's claims absurd. one right winger agrees. >> michele bachmann said it's long past to cut the nonsense and look at things clearly. michele bachmann actually trivializes it as a huge problem and irresponsible spending by the federal government. two words, not good. >> okay, everyone. i'll let you set your dvrs and tivos. are you ready? bill o'reilly is right. i agree with bill. this is another trivial pursuit. it's not about policy. it's another silly personal attack like all the ones we've become used to. whether it's claiming the president wasn't born in this country or that he didn't really go skeet shooting or attacking his lavish vacations where he grew up or for presenting the first lady an award at the oscar's or for slamming him for filling out ncaa brackets. bill was right. but i wonder if he told his colleagues that these attacks were a waste of time?
president obama's departure to israel yesterday. the white house has yet to verify the claims but lawmakers are increasingly calling for action. here's what president obama said earlier today in a joint press conference with israeli prime minister netanyahu. >> with respect to chemical weapons, we intend to investigate thoroughly exactly what happened. obviously, in syria right now, you've got a war zone. you have information that's filtered out. but we have to make sure that we know exactly what happened, what was nature of the incident, what can we document, what can we prove. i've instructed me teams to work closely with all other countries in the region, and international organizations, and institutions to find out precisely whether or not this red line was crossed. i will note without at this point having all the facts before me, that we know the syrian government has the capacity to carry out chemical weapon attacks. we know that there are those there the syrian government who have compressed a willingness to use-- expressed a willingness to use chemical weapons if necessary, to prote
number two, one of the signature issues of obama's first campaign for the white house. the president's pledge to close gitmo. are i have said repeatedly, i intend to close guantanamo, and i will follow through on that. >> we're learning that a hunger strike at the detention facility is expanding to 25. one u.s. general is playing down those reports, though, saying action is a result of anger at president obama. >> they were particularly put off, i'm told, when the president has made no mention of closing the facility. nothing in the inauguration speech this is them bringing this up to us. nothing in the inauguration speech about closing it. nothing in the state of the union. >> in january, the office working to close gitmo set up by the president, it was closed itself. the special envoy in charge, reassigned, with no plans whatsoever to replace him. our question, will gitmo ever close? jason. >> you know what? it probably won't and this is one of the great embarrassments of the 21st century in the united states. these are men and women who are accused of crime. not lex luthor, the jo
obama's visit to israel. it is obvious that the stock for the president is all about pressing flesh and renewing relationships. >> ahead of the visit, the white house played down hopes of a renewed middle east peace process getting under way and signalled clearly that no major breakthroughs should be expected. so far, obama and israeli president benjamin netanyahu have been doing their best to put personal disagreements behind them. >> we look now at where israel and the u.s. stand today and with this visit could possibly take those ties. >> this is it is more of a symbolic gesture and less about the specifics of a peace plan. barack obama's aimed to build back a little warm in relations with israel. >> we've spent more time together, working together than i have with any leader, and this speaks to the closeness of our two nations. [applause] >> the alliance between the united states and israel is considered sacrosanct and has a long tradition. it dates back to 1967, during the six-day war. israeli forces took control of the west bank and the gaza strip. washington's pro-israeli pol
minister netanyahu, but that's different than the lecture he gave to obama in his own digs in the white house. what accounts for the shift here? is it merely the fact that he as there on his open terrain and he wants to be a nice host? or is this a general quinn change of attitude on netanya netanyahu's part? >> well, we're coming to a point where both sides have to think about what happens next. president obama was focused on ending two wars. and now he's facing two different challenges, whether it's iran's potential nuclear capability or what happens next in syria. both offers challenges that israel faces in. and the key question is what happens next, whether it's on iran, syria or ultimately the arab israeli conflict. >> can we afford a kind of symbolic trip here? there's a lot at stake, what the region is going through, what the partners of israel have seen as necessary to protect itself. what the palestinian response has been to two state solutions and what occupation. so how do we figure our way out of here, and how does the president respond to this? does he have anything substan

a bigger white house budget than barack obama does. this is a trivial pursuit. and michele bachmann made a mistake pursuing it. >> he says bachmann is playing small ball with the president and can't backup her criticism. >>> to the politics behind the gun control debate. democrats in the senate have decided not to put a ban on assault weapons in their proposed gun control bill, that's because it's not likely to pass. they're putting more of their efforts into required background checks. vice president joe biden says he's not giving up the fight. >> this is not about anybody's constitutional right to own a weapon. for all those who say we shouldn't and can't ban assault weapons, for all those who say the politics is too hard, how can they say that? when you take a look at those 20 beautiful babies and what happened to them and those six teachers and administrators. >> gloria borger joining me now from washington. gloria, what's going on behind the scenes on capitol hill with these gun measures? >> well, if a ban on assault weapons were easy to get, they would have renewed it when it expir
, why should they trust barack obama, who snubbed just beyond the pale snubbed bb netanyahu in the white house, that claimed they should go back to '67 border, we promised israel we would never ask them to do that. obama did it and then on top of that, sarkozy says that bb is a liar and oh, i've got to deal with him every week. why would bb netanyahu ever trust this man, the israelis, because i wouldn't if i were them. >> it's not about trust, it's about business. a, if you want to keep the checks flowing. b, you're an ally, and sarkozy was not elected in-- >> what does that have to do with something. >> they agree that iran will not have a nuclear bomb for at least another year. >> sean: and if they want the check flowing and-- >> remember the camp david accord and apologize for saying that israelis are descendents of apes and pigs, that would be a good start, right. >> the egyptians say they don't want the money. >> sean: they do-- by the american taxpayers, we can't afford to keep the white house open, but we're funding the terrorist terrorist, the former head of the muslim brotherhoo
guess i was surprised when obama cut the deal to create this, acting people in the white house if it would impact the women, infants and children program, the wic program they said well we don't think it's going to happen. i think the impact will be worse on low income americans and anything that shafts low income americans will happen, unfortunately. because it's pointless, mindless and counterproductive does not mean that they're not going to become u.s. law. >> john: they really thought that lucy would not pull the football away from charlie brown this time and now we're paying the price. you're battling hunger. how can the sequestration hurt your program. >> women who are pregnant, low income family with nutritional supplements prevented half a million babies from dying at birth. the sequestration is cutting 700,000 pregnant women and infants off the wic program. it's literally taking milk out of the mouths of hungry infants. now this program has prevented half a million babies from dying at birth. so it's ironic to me that most of the people who support these cuts claim t

for all americans. that will be the debate we will ave and the president is happily -- president obama is and the white house and that focus will be between the white house and the speaker, but the fact is that the american people have a lot to lose in that equation. the equities that you must weigh in order to make further cuts on top of $1.60 trillion last year, $1.20 trillion in the budget control act, another 400 billion, with the si sequestration, and on top of that more cuts come as a blueprint not just for mediocrity, it is a road the poverty for many people in our country, and not worthy of the greatness of our country. one more. >> there is talk among the conservative house republicans and the leadership that they want to attack entitlement reform -- attached the totten reform. they want to cut social security and medicare to i asked if this could be used. there is some leverage there. are you worried that republicans >> theydown this route want to use medicare, medicaid, social security to reduce the deficit. >> they want entitlement reform in exchange for the debt limit. >>
and to the world. [ applause ] [laughter] >> jon: even obama thought that sentence was (bleep). [laughter] by the main question this raises is: what is in those drone memos that is so terrible the white house will give anything including information previously not seen about the benghazi attacks not to have to release them? the more we go to senior intelligence correspondent assif mandvi in washington. thank you for joining us. i understand, assif, if i'm not mistaken, you have obtained a copy of drone memos. >> what? um -- >> jon: are those the drone memos right there assif? >> right where? where? >> jon: in your hand. you got the -- >> no, no, no memos. never saw any memos, jon. i saw them oh, my god. >> jon: what are you looking up for? what is the up there? what is the problem, what are you looking up for? >> not any white house authorized domestic death drones. that's for sure. >> jon: is that a bullet-proof vest. there are drones here in america flying -- wait shall what? >> i would know nothing about that. so there would be no point in taking me out because i did not see the memos

of the white house since four years ago. he addressed young israelis in jerusalem. even there american politics wasn't far away. >> obama: you know politically given the strong support in america, the easiest thing for me to do is to put this issue aside. express unconditional support for whatever israel decides to do. that would be the easiest political path. but i want you to know that i speak to you as a friend who is deeply concerned and committed to your future. >> michael: and sometimes only friends can deliver the hard truth. >> you have the opportunity to be the generation that permanently secures the zionist ring, or you can face the growing challenge to its future. given the demographics west of the jordan river, the only way for israel to endure and thrive as a jewish and democratic state is through the realization of an independent and viable palestine. that is true.

we know from the campaign, president obama never did visit israel as president and got quite a bit of criticism and question about that. so the white house and the president decided this was the perfect time to come, to demonstrate-- the number one purpose of this trip was to demonstrate to the israeli public and prime minister netanyahi that the u.s. does have israel's interest at heart and as the president said himself today, that the u.s. has israel's back. and the reason that's important is because president obama needs to work together with president netanyahi on two particularly difficult issues. one is how to stop iran from getting a nuclear weapon, and the other is what to do about the fallout from the conflict in syria. in addition, the president would like to advance the wil rel-palestinian piece process, and again he needs prime minister netanyahi for that. above all, the white house and the president calculate that if he can move israeli public opinion about him from its deeply unfavorable view now-- only 10% in a poll last week have a favorable poll of the president. 3
. the comments reverberating around the globe and here at home. fox news chief white house correspondent ed henry with our report. >> reporter: talking tough in his first public comments on that reports that chemical weapons in the news in syria, president obama about the regime will be held accountable. >> when you start seeing weapons that can cause potential devastation and mass casualties and you let that genie out of the bottle, then you are looking potentially add even more horrific scenes than we have already seen in syria and the international community has to act on that additional a permission. >> the president spoke at a news conference with israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu who is worried serious chemical weapons could wind up in the hands of terrorists or anti israeli extremists like hezbollah. mr. obama is stressing he is skeptical that they used chemical weapons and cautioned that the u.s. is still investigating claims that syrian president use them, the president a bushel when israeli reporter suggested that the u.s. has beenitting on its hands. >> is incorrect for you to
care plans, holding meetings to defeat them early in the obama administration, well before congress started its work to pass what became obamacare. we asked senate minority leader why republicans continue to fight the law even if republicans take over the senate and white house in 2016, the benefits will have started then, and americans will refuse to give them up, and mcconnell says that's not so. >> that's what the left hopes, but in the meantime, the cost of premiums is going up, people find out they can't necessarily keep the plans that the president said you could keep, and, in fact, none was promises made are happying, and they are not going to happen, so if you believe it can't possibly work and we're in a representative democracy, hopefully democrats with start responding to pressure to give us an opportunity to begin to blast big holes in it, and in my view, it needs to be pulled out root and branch, and the first opportunity that we have to do that, if the american people give us enough support to do that, we're going to do it. >> republicans pointed to this, a copy of the
would spend $46 trillion over the next ten years. apparently president obama thinks that the only things that need to be cut from our budget are white house tours. well, republicans and the american people know that there is a lot more that we could be cutting. taxes are demanding -- taxpayers are demanding that washington finally get serious about our budget and stop the political games and the political gimmicks. it's time for washington to do what families across the country have always had to do -- live within their means. democrats still don't steam get it. they continue to insist that the rules don't all apply to washinn and that they should not be held accountable. like their other failed policies of the past few years, the democrats' plan is very much a statement of their priorities. it does nothing to stop the overregulation that is destroying jobs, nothing to stop the overregulation that is strangling our economy. it protects failing government programs from reform. it does nothing to preserve and protect medicare and social security for few of generations. it just spends more
